i was thinking today as i was wandering about due to the cancellation of my first class. i was wondering what all you people were listening to as far as music right now. ya know, what band have you been listening to allot (or too much) lately. given the nature of this board i bet this sort of thing has been posted before, and if so, TOO BAD! :D

i go first!!! whee!

i have been listening to far too much of KNAPSACK, specifically the album THIS CONVERSATION IS ENDING STARTING RIGHT NOW. i bought it as i buy so many other albums, i knew one song off it and i liked that song. the whole cd, as it turns out, is phenominal. i have had much trouble getting it out of my cd player.

so feel free to post and share with the world the most intimate secrets (of your music collection) :wink:

*snickers* The most intimate secrets?

Um.. I've gotten hooked on the Epoxies, and I've been playing a local band, Perfect Salesman, with them... alternating that with Apoptygma Berzerk and some Echoing Green...

*rocks out* Hey, there, baby doll, come meet me in the bathroom stall, or anywhere, anywhere you please...

Right now I'm listening to NOTHING because my CD PLAYER is BROKEN....

But if it weren't... well, the list is really too big to type out. A lot of indie stuff that you've never heard of, plus a LOT of synthpop and electronica, and some emo, and some punk, etc....

Wojciech Kilar, guy who composed the music for Dracula and The Pianist... He has a fascination for Polish Traditional music amongst other things, and since I have a sudden interest in Poland it kinda' fits together... Not to mention he isn't half bad...

I especially like `Moving to the Ghetto,' I have a love for clarinets and simple pieces ^.^

Other than that, not a lot else, my old music just doesn't do much for me... So... eh, I'm in between music as it were...

Right at this moment? Constellation by The Julianna Theory.

But mostly I've been listening to the first Philmore album and also Uprok Mixtape Volume 1 by DJ Allstar (seriously give this one a listen! It is AWESOME. Look for "Stick This In Your Ear" by Deepspace 5 and "Nursery Rhymes" by KJ-52).

Well, you did ask... though I fear my musical taste is rather different from that of most others present - I even mean a different thing than you when I talk about bands.

Recently it has been a lot of the various Bands of H.M. Royal Marines (they have at least four, possibly five, plus the Corps of Drums and the Fanfare Trumpeters), the Corps of Drums of the 5th/8th (Volunteer) Battalion The King's Regiment (playing bugle-calls of the British Army - though it isn't comprehensive, so I have ordered another CD with the rest of the bugle-calls), Band of the Light Division, and - of course - Pipes and Drums. Recently I acquired a CD of the 2001 Edinburgh Military Tattoo, and I think I have spent more time listening to the 11 minute track with the Massed Pipes and Drums (of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards, 1st Battalion King's Own Scottish Borderers, 1st Battalion The Highlanders, Royal irish Regiment, 1st Battalion Royal Ghurka Rifles, 2nd Battalion Royal Ghurka Rifles, Royal Air Force Leuchars, Scotland's Unicersities Officers' Training Corps, The Rats of Tobruk, and the Royal Caledonian Society of Australia) - alone the drum-salute of less than 2 minutes is worth the price of the CD; it makes me shiver with delight each time I hear it; there is just something about the whole Scots style of rudimentary percussion.

Too cool, where did you order that?

Funny you asked, I just purchased three new CD's.

I started out with Chevelle- Wonder What's Next and The Very Best of Montrose just swapped out with Sawyer Brown Greatest Hits 1990-1995.

It's from the CD-recording of the 2001 Edinburgh Military Tattoo - music-stores with a lot of classical music should easily be able to get it, and many will probably sotck it in their "popular classical music" shelves (or whatever they call them). I ordered mine from a company called Discurio, however, along with four others:
  • Dankbaarheid Is Herinneren - Lest We forget, with the Band of the Light Division, and the buglers of the Last Post Association of Ieper (Ypres), Belgium
  • Beating Retreat and Tattoo, with the Band of H.M. Royal Marines - Royal Marines School of Music
  • Life on the Ocean Wave - A Musical Salute, with the Band of H.M. Royal Marines Portsmouth, the Band of H.M. Royal Marines Plymouth, the Band of H.M. Royal Marines Commandos, the Band of H.M. Royal Marines Scotland, the Fanfare Trumpetters of H.M. Royal Marines, and the Corps of Drums of H.M. Royal Marines
  • A Call to Arms - Bugle Calls of the British Army, with The Corps of Drums of the 5th/8th (Volunteer) Battalion The King's Regiment (with not a drummer to be heard - a corps of drums contains normally both drums, fifes, and bugles, but all members are termed drummers)


My experience with Discurio has been good, so I have ordered another six CDs - Beating Reatreat 2000 and Trooping the Colour 2000, both live recordings of the events, with the massed bands of the Household Division (King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery, the Horse Guards (the Blues and the Royals), the Life Guards, Grenadier Guards, Coldstream Guards, Scots Guards, Irish Guards, Welsh Guards), Great Irish Marches, with the Drums and Fifes 1st Battalion Irish Guards, Musket, Fife and Drum, with Bands, Fifes and Drums of the British Armed Forces, Drum and Fife Through History (performed by various units), and Bugle Calls for the British Army.

I am sure you can see a theme in there somewhere....

After that batch, I will look for a while at the recordings of Scottish label Lismor Recordings, who specialise in Pipes and Drums - they have recordings of just about all the Highlander regiments that existed prior to the shotgun-marriages enforced by the 1992 white-paper, as well as numerous other high-quality bands of pipes and drums, recordings of piedbroch-piping, and even two CD-titles which apparently contain naught but drum-salutes of the type I like so much (I may have only been a tubaist myself, but there is something about the sound of the pipes, and of the drum rudimentary, and the combination thereof, that just makes my heart go faster).

All the stations play around here is The Red so I got the album to check out some more of their songs and I'm defiantly liking it.

Guess I better pick up their first album next, been needing some music to keep me awake at night between stations. 8)

I got brave a couple of years ago and ordered from Amazon.com but have been leery of anywhere else.

Since you had good luck with Discurio I'll check them out.

Thanks for the suggestions on where to find pipe music, unfortunately no one carries it around here and I hate to order something without knowing if it's good or not.

sorry to hear THAT. if my cd player was broken... i'd probably cease to exist. and gloria DONT assume that i've never heard of tha indie. i'm sorta an indie freak, but not a good one, so there may be some really obscure stuff you listen to that i've never heard of... that was sorta the point. i know so few people who listen to the same type of music i do in real life, however you internet people (from the electronic dimension) seem to fit the bill, already got some stuff i've never heard to look up from other peoples posts. YAY NEW MUSIC!!!

A band I found that I really like is Dashboard Confessional, and usually I dont go for the more mainstream bands like him, but They caught my ear and then I find out that the lead singer for Dashboard used to be the lead singer for Further Seems Forever which was too cool.
but anyways some of the others I listen to are

The Lyndsay Diarys
Calibretto 13
R.T.C. (remember the cross)
slow coming day
Five Iron
Hangnail
Dogwood
and I still find myself dusting off the first Jars of Clay cd every once in a while.

Most of those bands are tooth and nail, but I live a sheltered life and I like tooth and nail
